Weddings… weddings… weddings.
I could never get enough of weddings. Nate says that it’s because I’m a hopeless romantic, and — well — I won’t argue with anyone there. I love bridal showers and seeing how giddy the bride-to-be is in anticipation of her big day. I love stepping into a church, all decorated with flowers and bows. I love watching the groom when the bride walks down the aisle and catching the way his eyes light up the minute he sees her. I love bridesmaid bouquets, dresses, and hair-do’s. I love the tall, ornate cakes. The classy or cute centerpieces. The oh-so-beautiful brides.
Every wedding is different, yet somehow always perfect.
And so, I am convinced that next year is going to be THE best year ever (other than the year I myself got married). 😉 Because I have three weddings to attend. And to top that off, I am the maid-of-honor in my best friend Ashley’s wedding. She asked me on Friday, thankfully asking me before we made it to the restaurant or else I probably would have made a scene. I’m thinking something along the lines of me standing on a chair and screaming. 😉
I won’t lie and say that I’m not a little bit apprehensive about this responsibility. I’ll be in charge of the bridal shower, as well as the bachelorette party (although her mom has assured me that she will assist in any way possible). And let’s be honest, I’m no Martha Stewart when it comes to decorating. Ashley, on the other hand, is my most talented friend when it comes to sewing, crafts, designing, and decorating. I have always said that she is the next Martha Stewart. So let’s just say that her shower needs to have detail.
But in the end, it’s all about love. Friendship. And just having fun. So I imagine that everything will be perfect. (Although if any of you want to send a prayer or two my way, please feel free. I could use some creative inspiration).
